OUR HISTORY

Read more

The Longchamp AM adventure was born in early 2013. When the company was created, the idea was to combine the agility of an entrepreneurial structure with the expertise of a prestigious financial institution. Convinced that regulated alternative management was booming, Longchamp AM entered into a partnership with Morgan Stanley (where its founders came from) to outsource key functions: the selection, seeding and distribution of new investment programs. Longchamp AM thus initiated its development in the “Alternative UCITS” market.

Since 2014, following our AMF authorization, we began to fully manage assets. In September of that year, we launched our first fund, the Longchamp Absolute Return Fund, a diversified fund of funds that draws on Longchamp AM’s original expertise, regulated alternative investment management.

In March 2020, this fund received the award for “Best Performing Fund over a 5 year period” in the Fund of Funds category by the prestigious and recognized Hedge Fund Journal  

Longchamp AM also received the “Jeune Entreprise Innovante” (JEI) label from the French administration for its research efforts aiming at focusing on the design of innovative strategies. We received the label in October 2015 and hired a doctor in economics and a doctoral student to strengthen our research capacities and publish various articles seeking to analyze the impact of regulations on portfolio management techniques and research on crisis detection signals.

Subsequently, Longchamp AM expanded its asset management team by adding new skills.

In 2019, we launched the Longchamp Autocall Fund, a strategy that relies on a unique expertise embodied by a team specialized in structured products.

With the arrival of Jean Fau, senior portfolio manager with more than 25 years of experience in the financial markets with leading institutions, Longchamp AM expands its internal management expertise to credit and fixed income. The Longchamp Solferino Credit Fund seeks to generate attractive returns by taking advantage of opportunities in the credit market, particularly in the High Yield segment.

Since its creation, Longchamp AM has worked alongside Dalton Investments (“Dalton”) by supporting their efforts with European investors to promote Asian equity strategies, in particular the Lafayette Dalton Asia Pacific UCITS Fund, a Long / Short fund. In 2018, we strengthened our partnership with Dalton with the launch of the Longchamp Dalton Japan Long Only UCITS Fund, a Long Only strategy on Japanese equities. This collaboration also gave birth in early 2020 to a third fund: the Longchamp Dalton India UCITS Fund, allowing investors to gain exposure to a growing region. We recently complemented our range of Dalton funds with the Longchamp Dalton Global Emerging Markets UCITS Fund, a Long Only strategy on emerging markets equities.

The last years have also been marked by the launch of various dedicated funds which are part of our tailor-made solutions service. Indeed, beyond our products, our customer approach leads us to enrich our offer where there is no internal expertise. We then compose portfolios that combine both our expertise and the best funds that we can identify.
